I'm sorry to see that you did not realise that I was being tongue-in-cheek.
If I really wanted to "make money" I would be out in the Arabian Gulf where
I once earned in a month twice what I earn here in a year. I make just
to pay my bills - and the only reason I do this work is because, in the
in my life I have a job in which I passionately believe.
And . . .
most parents know little or nothing about what constitutes good holistic
education, so I make damn sure the kids are NOT doing the job the adults
have sent them off to do: I make sure the children are learning in a
child-centred safe environment which is completely unlike the
semi-Dickensian school methods that are standard here in Bulgaria.
You have 'pricked me hard' on that one as I live for my teaching, and
I do not 'teach to live'.
